(2015)VLAAMS DIERGENEESKUNDIG TIJDSCHRIFT.84(3).p.158-161 Mark abstract In this case report, a markedly painful ulcerative dermatitis consistent with pyoderma granulosum is reported in a 2.5-year-old entire female Maltese dog. The dog had a nasal stridor and irregular ulcers with raised inflammatory borders involving the lumbar area, tail and the hindlimbs. The lesions did not respond to antibiotics. Histopathologic features include deep crateriform ulcerations with massive infiltrations of neutrophils beneath and adjacent to the ulcers. Treatment with prednisolone (Kela Laboratories, Sint-Niklaas, Belgium) alone resulted in the resolution of nasal signs and all skin lesions.
